Introducing the next generation of fashion designers and performing artists, the 68th annual Parsons Benefit will be held Monday, May 23, 2016, at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers. Funds raised at the event support scholarships to The New School for students who would otherwise be unable to attend the university.
The benefit, now in its 68th year, has honored fashion innovators including Jason Wu, Hugo Boss, Donna Karan, Reed Krakoff, Francisco Costa, Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, and Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Highlights of the Fashion Benefit are the runway show of select collections by graduating students and the naming of the Designers of the Year.
